Book Description

20 Aug 2008
Classic leadership theory is presented here in a fresh and fashionable framework in this new, practical book for managers. Written in entertaining style, securely underpinned with the most credible and extensive research, top level case studies and frank opinion from prominent business and political leaders is featured throughout.
Many different specific aspects of leadership have been focused on in the past to define the concept. From character to contingency, from context to chameleonic ability, from follower to future planning, each aspect has had its own piece of the limelight and modernity moment. This book brings all of these aspects together for moot. Leadership is examined from the heart and mind of a 'great' individual to the hearts and minds of followers of all levels. Perception, process, people, profit, planning, praise, promotion all have their place in a rounded look at the whole of leadership – not just little bits of it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Transformed 'sames' but no references to main influences received 27 Aug 2009
By M. Bruno - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I always find it interesting reviews on leadership and more 'adds' and new insights on this important social role. What really upset me is when there are no references for the influences authors uses when writing a book. If you do not agree, see pages 198 - 200. Clearly the model used there is Elliott Jaque's and G. Stamp levels of work, complexity of work. But no references to them. Why not? Putting references will it decrease the importance of the work? Seeing this, I just cannot support the book since I see some lack of elegance.
